It's weird to think that in just one week I will be travelling to the UK. I'm off to visit my family for three weeks and I can't wait. Saying that I feel completely unprepared. My vacation seemed a long way off and suddenly here I am with a week to go feeling completely stressed out. I just have to tell myself that whatever doesn't get done just doesn't get done and be ok with that.
On a sad note, my uncle suffered a severe stroke and passed away last week. My heart breaks for my aunt and cousins as, having lost my own father, I know just how hard this must be for them. I'm glad that his funeral is the day after I arrive so that I can be there in person to give them all great big hugs.
It's been two years since I was last home. It will be good to visit some of my favorite places and spend time with my family, I miss not being able to see them often.
I guess I should step away from the computer and dig out my suitcase. I've heard it's cold and raining there right now so I need to figure out what clothes to pack. Let the count down begin.
